Unidentified gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Monday, January 25, attacked and abducted travellers along the popular Benin-Ore road.
As seen in a viral video shared on social media, an empty bus with its glasses broken was abandoned in the middle of the expressway with some of the passenger’s luggage scattered at the scene.
Passengers from other vehicles who arrived at the scene just after the attack alleged that the herdsmen paraded occupants of the abandoned bus into a nearby bush after seizing some of their belongings.
